DefenderOfDoom2387d ago

So around 89 thousand for PS5 and 85 thousand for PS4 . So a lot of people still playing on PS4.

Nyxus387d ago

In Japan they are, which explains the cross-gen games. Ryza 3 also sold better on PS4 than on PS5.

Rocketisleague387d ago

Got it on ps4 myself. Was between that and pc. Got returnal on pc a few weeks ago. Not much of a reason to get a pa5 these days

BehindTheRows386d ago

Seems many disagree and so do PS5’s latest hardware numbers.

Rocketisleague386d ago

It is good blackblade. Having a ps4 and pc gives me access to all games outside of Nintendo....besides emulating Nintendo..

andy85387d ago

Glad Ryza is selling a bit it's the best of the series

Nyxus387d ago

I bought the game as well. I just wish more websites would actually review it, so it can be brought to more people's attention.

andy85386d ago

Yeah definitely I'm surprised it's even in the top 10 it's flown so far under the radar. Maybe it's being advertised in Japan


The 10 PSVR 2 Games You Should Own

If you're looking for 'must have' PSVR 2 games then look no further. These are the 10 titles every PSVR 2 owner should have in their library.

If you're wanting more PSVR 2 support, you should probably buy all of these games.

Speak with your wallet!

Profchaos33d ago

Bit rich to have to buy games you don't want because you want Sony to support the expensive headset they sold us which cost as much as the console it runs on beyond paying third partys to support it.
Seriously in terms of first party we have horizon on day 1 and a gt 7 vr mode.

They seemingly have made little effort to support it beyond paying Capcom to make re games in VR or a second party studio to make firewall which was mismanaged.

I'm a day 1 psvr2 user and the only thing I'm excited for right now is PC support.

I commented recently this bespoke VR game development model we have right now clearly doesn't work

crazyCoconuts33d ago

On the one hand I feel like there's been plenty of smaller non-AAA games to play and occupy me as a supplement to my flat screen gaming.
But I agree that Sony has done nothing to elevate this beyond the niche it's in and into the mainstream where it would be economical to create AAA games for it.

Babadook733d ago (Edited 33d ago )

Most of these games are worth owning for most people; I own all but 2 of them in fact. So I agree with kevco33. I think you're crazy if you downplay this list quite frankly. Sony can't keep funding software if people don't buy any of it, the ball is squarely in OUR court.

Sony has spent a lot on 3rd party stuff this gen like RE.

phoenixwing33d ago (Edited 33d ago )

Saving up for the headset is my first hurdle. Let alone buying games I don't want lol

mudakoshaka33d ago

People downvoting you for not having enough finances...what a world we live in, haha

phoenixwing33d ago (Edited 33d ago )

They feel affronted at the very thought that I don't plunk down 500 immediately lol I have a little over 900 games in my backlog I've been buying games instead of hardware ever since I got my PC and ps5. I just don't know if vr is really for me honestly. Every time I have a couple hundred allocated to video games it makes more sense to buy a bunch of flat games instead of vr ones

mudakoshaka33d ago

I have 9 out of these 10 games. I try to buy all the VR games I like to support the advancement of VR!

TheEroica32d ago (Edited 32d ago )

I spoke with my wallet after watching the first headset get weak support. Easy pass until Sony earns my money. Feel bad for those who parted with 500 bucks, falling for the hype that Sony was actually gonna support this thing.

Neonridr33d ago

I own 7 of these titles off the list, lol.

NotoriousWhiz33d ago

I'm trying to decide if it's worth holding onto my psvr 2. I enjoy what it has currently, but it seems unlikely to get anything else. Might be better off just waiting for something with more support if that ever comes.

Profchaos33d ago

As a fellow psvr2 owner the question seemingly comes down to do you own a PC.

I think I'm all in I have a habit to hold onto my systems anyhow I still have my psvr1 to hell I still have my NES.

But while it's still worth something yeah you could sell it and if Sony turns the ship around you should be able to buy another one for less than you soldmit for I feel like we won't see any fix for the headset for the next 2 years rumours show that Sony has no current first party VR games in active development after they closed London studios

The whole psvr2 situation has left me feeling a little burnt on PlayStation as a whole to be honest. The first psvr felt experimental but it was supported far more than this superior headset


GT7 surprised me, because I hate racing games, but i poured 100 hours into it way too quickly.

I’m looking forward to the Metro VR game this year, and I hope that WW2 dogfighter game releases eventually.

talocaca33d ago

I have most of them 😅

Waiting for a sale on Synapse and Arizona Sunshine 2.....also Metro coming this year looks great.
